Craig Bancroft, Managing Director of Northcote, Lancashire has been awarded the special Association of Portuguese Wine Importers (APWI) Award.
It is only the third time the APWI Special Award has been presented and recognises the long-standing commitment to promoting Portuguese wines for 25 years.
Commenting on the award, Craig said, “This award is one that I will cherish as Portugal for me has given so much pleasure to us at Northcote over the 29 years of championing their wine regions. The diversity of wines from Portugal has given us some amazing opportunities to find food and wine pairings that we would have otherwise not reached. The award is a great honour for us and the whole wine team lead by Head Sommelier Adam Pawlowski”.
